Catching up with George

George seems to be everywhere lately. He's wrapping an interview this morning on Metro Minute on the CBC and was on Good Morning America three days ago. We here at the Stroumboulopouli are trying to catch up with all the articles, videos and social media following George's summer move to CNN. Some feel uneasy that we are going to loose our beloved talk show host to the Americans, but George has been reassuring everyone that he will return to CBC for a 10th season after his ten episodes with CNN. If you want to join in the conversation about George, here are some selected videos and links.

On May 28, 2013, George swung by The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. You can watch as George turns the tables and begins interviewing Craig on his own show here.

On June 3, 2013, CNN released this promotional video about the show here.

Hopefully, you all caught our post about George on Huffington Post Live on June 5, 2013. If you haven't seen it yet, click here.

June 6, 2013 seemed to be a rather busy day. CNN released two more promotional videos showing George interviewing Martin Short and Wiz Khalifa on his premiere show this Sunday. You can follow the links for Martin here and Wiz here.

Jake Tapper from The Lead on CNN pokes fun at George's name, quizzes him on the meaning of double double, hoser, toque, and other questions. Wolf Blitzer also responds to George's comment about him being the Neil Young of CNN here.

Brooke Baldwin takes a break from Live CNN to talk with George about bringing back "rad", working with a live audience, interviewing Wiz, the infamous lean-in and presentation of questions, and ends with a fun word association.

Strombo's CNN Facebook page posted a video of Ashleigh Benfield talking to George on June 7, 2013 here. Please visit the page and show your support for George by liking the page too.

Next George will  be representing Canada in New York City, USA and London, England for Canada Day. You can read about June 29's event in Central Park and July 1's event in Trafalgar Square here.

Also, some of us here are a bit curious about a blog post asking who would replace George if he ever decided to move permanently to America. Feel free to share your ideas in our comment section or to read the post here.
